Welcome to the Monmouth County Surrogate’s Court

As Surrogate I am responsible for the administration of the services offered by the Surrogates Court. In addition, I serve as Clerk to Superior Court, Chancery Division, Probate Part, and Clerk to Family Part for adoptions.

I have compiled the following information to help answer any questions you may have regarding probate of a Will, qualifying as Administrator of an Estate, applying for Guardianship of an individual, or applying for an Adoption.

My office is in the Hall of Records, One East Main Street in Freehold, NJ and is fully staffed and conducting all business operations. Our office hours are Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please know you have the option to complete all necessary services via telephone, fax, email, regular mail, and by way of hand delivery or courier. You can also drop off your documents to our receptionist for processing.

My primary goal is to serve you, especially when you may be grieving the loss of a loved one. The information on this website is intended to be of assistance by offering guidance to you and your family during times of uncertainty.

Please be assured that I am committed to keeping the website updated whenever the need arises so that the information provided is always current.

Maureen T. Raisch, Surrogate
